    They haven't said details yet but I can't see Ben riding the little bike.

    Nooooo... I think they put it on there in tribute to him as the manager.

    I was seriously going to text him to smile at least a little.

    Unlike a lot of dealers getting into it Rahal knows racing so it could be pretty cool.

    I think Ben is in it for discounts on Porsches and performance stuff :D

    So, what’s the deal-eee-oh? Rahal Ducati with backing by Xpel and Spies as cheese? Rider(s)? Supersport only?

    No time to watch the YouTube thing.

    Supersport, 2 bikes (15 and 19), no riders yet, The Ben running it all for the Rahals. Xpel paying a lot of the bills.

    BigBird blah

  13. Driver / team owner(s) who know how to win, manager who does as well, they obviously know how to budget to win and not having to cut corners. This is a very very very good thing for MA. Rahal name alone will draw people.

    That's what I'm hoping. And as much as all of the whiners bitch about the live stream and youtube and tv coverage isn't what they personally want, those things give advertisers impressions and that's what keeps them paying money.

    Does anyone think that now Rahal/Xpel are in it, Indy will be back in the mix for 2025?

    Thanks for the info. :up:

    wonder if this was what Spies was working on a few years ago now with a strong backer? Eh, doesn’t matter, it’s pretty darn alright.

    No clue how friendly Rahal and Roger Penske are.

    Isn’t Rahal tied in with Letterman in Indy cars?

    When it was here in Indy (granted it was COVID times) it didn't generate a ton of money. Having Mid Ohio back on the schedule could generate more fans by having two midwest races. It would be awesome for sure!
